Pocket Guide: Crowhurst Yew Crowhurst Yew Hotels

Surrey is full of interesting historic towns and villages, and has some of the most attractive unspoilt landscapes in the British Isles. Its close proximity to the capital makes it a popular destination for visitors wishing to explore areas like Surrey Heath and Mole Valley, so close to London and yet so very different in their charm and rural serenity. Stay at one of the many Surrey hotels and guesthouses that pepper the county and you'll have quick and easy access to its numerous delights. One of Surrey's more unusual natural attractions is a massive oak tree, reputedly as old as Methuselah, located in one of its more remote villages.

Surrey Hotels Close to the Crowhurst Yew

The Crowhurst Yew is an enormous hollow yew tree that dominates the churchyard of St. George's in Crowhurst, a village in Surrey's Tandridge district. Perhaps it's the quality of the air and the sense of calm in this rural area that have contributed to the tree's longevity. Whatever the reasons, this remarkable tree is supposed to be over 4,000 years old.

The diarist John Evelyn mentions it in his great book Silva, a discourse on forest trees of the realm. This was in the 17th Century and it was already ancient then. It was also described by John Aubrey, of Brief Lives fame, around the same time. The tree has a space inside big enough to stretch out in, and is fitted with a wooden door. Based nearby at a Surrey guesthouse, B&B or hotel, it's worth coming along to see it. It makes the Major Oak in Sherwood Forest look like a new kid on the block!

Visit Crowhurst Yew from a Surrey Hotel

In the 19th Century the tree was converted into an unusual summer house, and as the work progressed a large cannon ball from the English Civil War period was found embedded in its side. The age old bark has a complex pattern of pink whorls and ridges that according to local lore shows the face of an old man. Come and see one of the country's oldest trees from your Surrey hotel nearby and prepare to be astounded.
